review by don411.com
Conquer Change and Win is a fascinating look at how the relentless change we experience in our professional and personal lives effects us physically and emotionally. His down to earth explanations of coping strategies coupled with bits of humor make change easier to manage.
Masengill reminds us that fear of change is normal and the anxiety, stress and anger that we experience cannot be controlled and should not be ignored. The magic happens when you learn to control your response to these feelings. This comes with recognizing how we react to various types of change and why. This book will teach you how.
Conquer Change and Win was written for business leaders and includes chapters on dealing with difficult people, decision making, selling your change ideas, team building and positive negotiation. You will sense the ghost of Dr. Edwards Deming in these chapters, as Masengill acknowledges. I found applications from these chapters helpful in everyday life, for who among us could not be more persuasive socially or at home?
His opening quote reminds us, “Change is inevitable – except from a vending machine.” Read this book and let these strategies bring more peace, joy and happiness into your life.
To Grow, One Must Embrace Change. Learn How To Overcome Fear And Become Successful In Conquer Change And Win
Morristown, TN, March 13, 2017 – Learn what 90% of Americans have no clue about. Be the last person standing in the room by knowing how change affects our emotions and feelings. Conquer Change and Win will show you how to control your reaction to those emotions and feelings that all change always causes. The result will be a happier and more fulfilled life. This information will give you a leg up for improving finances and having less stress in your life.
Every one of us is constantly affected by change. Change never stops, and no matter if it’s positive change or not, our first reaction is usually fear. The truly successful people of the world have a good understanding of change and how to make it work to their advantage. In his latest book, Conquer Change and Win, best-selling author Ralph Masengill gives readers an easy-to-read, fun book about the serious subject of change.
In forty-plus years as a consultant, coach, advisor and public relations strategist, Masengill has observed that successful people share two characteristics. First, they are willing to take a calculated risk and endorse positive change on a regular basis. Secondly, they have learned how change affects their emotions and how to overcome the fear of change.
“I believe the happiest and most successful people do not necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have,” Masengill says. He urges readers to choose change. “It is the path to true happiness and business success. Understanding how change works can alter your life for the better and give you a solid advantage.”
An advisor, coach, marketing expert, business consultant and public relations strategist, Masengill understands how companies work from within. He has the wisdom of one who has made the journey of sustained success himself, leavened by an ethics-based philosophy of helping others and the community around him. Masengill’s life story is one of personal challenge, tragedy, and triumph. His professional career has been defined by great success in both the private and public sectors. His agency, Masengill Marketing Associates, has won over 850 national and regional advertising and marketing awards.
One of the original change agents in the United States, Masengill and his team have been observing change and showing business leaders that embracing and understanding positive change is the sure route to effective quality improvement and substantial profit enhancement for decades. This extensive experience formed the basis for Conquer Change and Win, his second book.
A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Masengill’s postgraduate work includes the Dr. W. Edwards Deming course on quality and quality management. He and his wife Dianne live near the Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee. They have four grown children, two dogs and a cat. Masengill enjoys woodworking, oil painting, sailing and helping with his favorite charities in his spare time.
